Expect More from your Infrastructure
An increase in both population and extreme weather events calls for an increase in public infrastructure standards. Providing multiple benefits, promoting resource efficiency, managing operational costs, and mitigating disaster risk are the new normal for capital projects. From concept to cones up, Harris helps you leverage new and traditional approaches to meet your community’s expectations.
With so many moving parts throughout the construction of any municipal project, Harris understands that coordination is vital for staying efficient and meeting tight budgets and timeframes. We have the expertise to foresee potential issues and adjust accordingly—a necessity when you cannot disrupt public access during construction.
